Not that it makes a difference but it is a 30th. Still cool.

Yeah, obviously Johnsonville is not affected by CITES. Wonder what their secret is. Still waiting for my LNG.

Re: LNG Spotted in TV Commercial

There were probably 60+ 30ths in the country before 1/2. And typically they never actually buy the props but rent them. I've had several calls from NY productions where they wanted to rent a chromeboy or [insert expensive model here] and I just say no. It's not a hassle I want no matter how lucrative. [ok, if it was that lucrative I'd have investigated further!]

Interesting. Any idea as to how much renting out a high end guitar costs? Is it by the hour or a flat fee?

It was a flat fee iirc, it's been at least a decade.

Whoever owns that LNG in the video, they will need to wipe that thing down really well. In 1080p you can see all of the fingerprints on it. Must have had a lot of hands on that thing during the shoot.

Re: LNG Spotted in TV Commercial

I was talking with an actor I deal with and happened to bring it up and he said NEVER rent to movie productions. Nobody gives a sh!t about anything on the set. Which I believe, but then Dave's does alot of loaning to Hollywood so, who knows.

Not surprising at all. I have also heard stories about all of the waste that happens on movie sets after a shoot is over.

Haha that's pretty awesome. How much must that triple neck bass weigh?

The guy holding the LNG in the video looks like Fred Norris from the Stern show.
